Frequently Asked Questions About Elder Care Services from Visiting Angels Havertown

If you’re thinking about working with Visiting Angels, here’s some information about the elder care services we provide in Havertown, Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood and surrounding PA communities

Q. What kind of elder care services do you provide in Havertown and surrounding areas?

A: When it comes to our home care services, we deliver companion care and personal care services to seniors living in Delaware County, Montgomery County, Philadelphia County and the Philadelphia Main Line. All of our services are designed to help older adults age safely at home. We can provide fall prevention, medication reminders, light housekeeping, toileting or bathing assistance and grocery shopping. By assisting our clients with their daily tasks, we ensure their comfort and well-being throughout their golden years.

Q: What is the meaning of the term "aging in place"?

A: We use this term when we are referring to a senior’s ability to grow old in their own home. It is the opposite of spending their golden years in a nursing home. This term sometimes also means the ability to stay in an assisted living facility with the help from a caregiver.

Q: Do you deliver care in assisted living facilities?

A:  When seniors have specialized needs, sometimes the level of care in the assisted living facility just isn’t enough to enable their independence. When this is the case, we can deliver elder care services in the facility. Our caregivers can make sure that the level of care a senior needs is the level of care that they receive.

Q: How quickly can home care services be started?

A: Although in most cases we are able to start elder care services within a 48-hour period, sometimes it is possible to provide them on the very same day.

Q: Can I change the schedule if needed?

A:  With only one-week notice we are able to make all needed changes in the schedule so it meets your or your loved one’s needs. Our goal is to offer a schedule that works for the clients, not the agency. With Visiting Angels Havertown, your needs come first, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that the schedule you want is the one you get.

A: You can contact our Havertown, PA office to get started. Our care coordinator will come to your home and conduct a free, no-obligation assessment. After we learn about your needs, we will match you with a suitable caregiver. After they receive your approval, they will start working for you.
